Thoughts About Electrolysis Hair Removal - The Only Truly Permanent Method
It is common knowledge that menopause makes women smarter and even more devastatingly beautiful. (If this is not already common knowledge in your house, take steps immediately to make sure everyone is on the same page.) In exchange for all of that wisdom and beauty, Mother Nature often "blesses" us during menopause with unwanted hair growth where we wish it wasn’t. It can be fine and downy, like peach fuzz on our cheeks. Or it can take the form of wiry hairs sticking out of our chins and upper lips. We can thank our hormones for this. During our childbearing […]Read more
Is Your Hairline Giving the Wrong Impression? In the early 1900s, a doctor named Gerolamo Cardano penned several books in which he made an association between forehead lines and the planets. According to Cardano, the horizontal and vertical shapes on the forehead corresponded to different planets and provided valuable insight into personality and behavior. Interestingly, not only do followers of Metoposcopy read the lines, they also attempt to determine one’s personality and qualities by looking at the size of the forehead, and the shape of the hairline. So what if, for example, you have a straight hairline with a narrow […]Read more
While the term body positivity might be new, the sentiment isn't. Everyone wants to feel good about themselves. When faced with something you feel like you can't change, you have a choice to make - accept the trait or spiral into depression. At least, that’s the frame of the body positivity argument. Given those options, it’s easy to see why many men and women alike are leading others to accept their weight, stretch marks, gray hair, wrinkles, and body hair. Body positivity is not magic Their attitudes are jaunty and fearless; it's easy to see why anyone would want to […]Read more
Whether due to an activated toe hair gene or a heady concentration of hair growth hormones, or a confluence of both, some people have hairy feet. Whether that’s a smattering of toe hair on a few digits or cascades of curlicued hair needing a brush, Western society is increasingly drawn to smooth, hair-free skin. People with particularly luxuriant feet have compared themselves to Tolkien’s hobbits - creatures whose feet are covered in a coat of hair. Now that summer is upon us, many are looking down at those hairs bared in their sandals and wishing for a solution. No one […]Read more
Hair removal and tattoos are both ways of expressing yourself. Both are about you taking control of your body and appearance. Unfortunately, these two means of expression do not always get along. When looking into hair removal options, it is important to know how your body art may affect your process. Hair Removal Near Tattoos For unwanted hair issues, the two main contenders are electrolysis and laser. With professional electrolysis, an effect on tattoos is very unlikely. Electrolysis goes below your ink, to the base of the hair follicle. It destroys the growth cells in that one follicle, making it […]Read more

Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
